Giants Designate Jake Dunning

The Giants have designated right-handed reliever Jake Dunning for assignment, tweets Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. The move creates room on the active roster for Joe Panik.

Last season, the 25-year-old Dunning contributed a 2.84 ERA, 5.68 K/9, and 3.91 BB/9 over 25 and one-third innings. This year, he made just one appearance for the big league club, walking one batter and unleashing two wild pitches in just two-thirds of an inning. Dunning also struggled in the minors this season with a 5.88 ERA. His fastball averaged 87.7 mph in his lone major league appearance, down over two mph from his average velocity last year.

Per MLBTR’s DFA Tracker, Dunning joins five other players in DFA limbo: Roger Bernadina, J.J. Putz, Evan Reed, Kevin Slowey, and Josh Outman.
